. >> another hot topic, the deficit. >> it's now four years later, we still have trillion dollar defici deficits. >> $2.50 for every cut, we ask for a dollar of additional revenue paid for as i indicated earlier by asking those of us who have done very well in this country to contribute a little bit more to reduce the deficit. >> there were also some notable exchanges about jobs, health care, energy industry subsidies and regulation, all of these things got deeper than some people had been expecting. we'll talk about those topics with john harwood. but if you were watching, as they headed in a 70% -- >> down from 80 the day before. >> right now it's down to about 66% in trade obviously suggesting romney got a big boost. >> mini flash crash. >> among our political guests this morning ready to talk about the road to election today, arianna huffington will be our guest host. huffington "post" obviously has a left bent, but it was declaring romney won the debate. ken duberstein will join us, as well. >> i was reading some of your tweets last night, john, and i liked your tweet. i tell you w
be here doing the major things. people want jobs and have to reduce the deficit and avoid the fiscal cliff. this has been the most unproductive session in congress in all the years and decades that i have been a member. we have veterans benefits that will not be increased unless congress acts, we have people waiting for the government to do its job and it is disgraceful that we went home without doing the things that need to be done. we left for the election campaign at the earliest time in memory. the could have stayed here longer and we would call the republicans to bring this back so we can to the nation's business. the republicans have been extremely anti-environmental, hostile to a lot of the women's legislation, they have harmed the middle-class, poll last year and a half has been simply postures and get all the work that is to be done is not addressing these issues. congress should come back in session. we should be working, not taking this time off. i want to call my colleague chris van hollen. >> thank you, henry. there's a will to get things done. we just had the whistle blower p
that the military hasn't asked for. that's $8 trillion. how we pay for that, reduce the deficit and make the investments that we need to make without dumping those costs onto middle-class americans i think is one of the central questions of this campaign. >> under the president's policies, middle-income americans have been buried. they've just been crushed. middle-income americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. this is a tax in and of itself. i'll call it the economy tax. it's been crushing. at the same time, gasoline prices have doubled under the president. electric rates are up. food prices are up. health care costs have gone up by $2,500 a family. middle-income families are being crushed. and so the question is how to get them going again. >> a lot of this is just the visual and style of it, but also he was writing a lot. his head was down instead of engaging when you're debating, i have to say that mitt romney knew how to do that, how to get right in there and look right at him and go after. and then he was able to sort of gain control of the narrative, so to speak, beca
informed, mr. president, looking at this year's budget you are going to have a trillion dollars deficit. he said, "i haven't done anything yet." [laughter] he said, no, mr. president, the budget they passed in october of last year guarantees that no matter what you do, you will have a trillion dollar deficit this year in the budget. ladies and gentlemen, these guys talk about the national debt. what date did generated the slowest growth in private-sector jobs since world war ii. it gave us this great recession. what they have not told us is that they have been unwilling to do anything about it. here's the deal, folks. we laid out a $4 trillion debt reduction plan over the next 10 years. we have already passed $1 trillion of it. ladies and gentlemen, these guys vote against everything. no, no, no. i really mean it. not only do they say they don't like our plan, so you say, what's your plan? you go out there and you look at the setup. an impressive bipartisan commission. simpson-bowles. domenichi's. every one of those plans they voted against. paul ryan even voted against the simpson-bowles p
$86 million a day to the federal government. that's a lot of revenue that could help with deficit, deficit reduction and our debt structure. the third piece of that is we could become more energy secure as a nation. today we're less reliant on outside sources. new technologies have allowed us to produce all the energy we'll need right here at home. if we create policies to allow us to use americans to create american energy, it'll benefit us all. those are the things that could be done immediately. >> so how come the administration isn't doing it, if it's that obvious these jobs can be created soon? >> well, it's unfortunate because i think their limitations on the industry is driven by, in my view, extreme ideology. it's driven by an irresponsible view that we can switch from one energy form to the other overnight. somehow, we can take the 62% of our energy in the u.s., which happens to be oil and natural gas, and just flip a switch and turn that to wind mills or solar panels. all energy forms are important to us, but the reality is it took us 100 years in the united states to ge
is so weak and republicans are talking about trying to, you know, bring the government deficit down, trying to straighten out the economy in the long run. so i don't see final demand so things might be better four years from now and therefore the president will look very good in hindsight, but it's going to be a hell of a ride getting there. >> you say might look better four years from now. >> i don't know. are they going to do a good job? it's hard to do a good job. i would argue obama did a good job because the situation was so awful where he started out. looking with hindsight you could have done better than you did. >> what do you think has to happen most? you worry about some of the austerity but you think we need to flush the system and deal with bitter medicine? >> well, one thing, the really good things about the united states, you got to be much more positive about this country than europe or japan. one, because we've got more people here, we're growing, we have babies, we have growing population so the housing problem will disappear. all of the houses are going to get used
, and we could lose our country. >>> ross perot interviewed by usa today on the economy, deficit, and debt, and how it changed since he ran for president in 1992 and 1996. find his article in "usa today," and usatoday.com. ross perot tonight on c-span at 9 eastern. >> the substance abuse and mental health services administration recently released their annual report and found that 22.5 million americans aged 12 and older use illicit drugs and rates remain stable since the last survey in 2010. marijuana continues to be the most commonly used drug. the latest 2011 national survey on drug use and health marks the 23rd national observance of national recovery month. >> already. good morning. doctor wesley clark, director of the center of behavior statistics and quality and substance use -- [inaudible] on behalf of samsha, i welcome you here. we have the observance of recovery month, and the theme this year is join the voices for recovery, it's worth it. indeed, as we look at favorable results depicted in the data today, we're making progress, but we have to remain vigilant as much needs to be
to the same standard as well. >> first of all, we have a deficit plan, it's got health care savings. romney doesn't have a deficit plan. he's got a plan to cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires. he's got a 5 trilli$5 trillion. -- another $2 trillion in defense spending. >> just three days into the first presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock najs that this is an important opportunity in her debate. people have a tendency to focus on the small things, like the color of a candidate's tie or the dramatic one liners, which is his need to get across the big picture message. he says if he does that, he thinks he can be effective over the course of the next three debates and ultimately win this thing. we heard this morning from governor chris christie of new jersey, i want to play you another clip from new jersey this morning. chris christ >> and so they're going start t
the math work on his deficit plan and his tax plan. are we going to get those details in the course of the debate? >> well, you know, david, i wish you guys were just as tough on the president. the president says he's going to create a million new manufacturing jobs. he doesn't say how. he says he's going to reduce the long-term debt and deficit by $4 trillion. doesn't say how he's going to do it. you know, let's be fair here. governor romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. he's not an accountant. he's not going to go line by line as much as you'd like him to do through the budget. but let's hold the president to the same standard and criticize him as well. >>> good morning, it is monday, october 1st. it's october, everybody. welcome to "morning joe." >> yeah, you know who's glad september's over? >> who? >> the jets. holy cow! >> i thought you were going to say mitt romney. with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" senior political editor mark halperin and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine john heilemann. guys. hi, willie. >> he
, but you can't stop watching it. you'll see it. back in 60 seconds. >> greta: from the $16 trillion deficit to the stubbornly high unemployment rate, president obama supportsers are finding lots of reasons to change their votes. they're speaking out in a new ad for the romney/ryan ticket. shot clock. >> i voted for bill clinton twice. i voted for clinton. >> i voted for clinton. >> al gore. >> i voted for al gore. >> al gore. >> i voted for barack obama. >> i voted for barack obama. >> barack obama in 2008. >> i had huge hopes. but you know what, i got burned in 2008. >> the trillions and trillions of dollars of deficits. >> this time. >> this year. >> i've changed. >> i'm changing my vote. >> i changed my mind. >> to mitt romney and paul ryan. >> to romney and ryan. >> to mitt romney and paul ryan. they have plans and ideas that i believe will work. >> greta: joining us our political panel, rick klein, michael crawley, and justin sink. rick? >> find me a voter for voted for mccain four years ago and now says obama. it's a small segment of the population. this is the kind of message. it's a
the deficit. one thing we will discuss tonight is how to deal with the tax code and how to make sure we are reducing spending in a responsible way and how to have enough revenue to make those investments. this is where there is a difference because gov. romney's central plan calls for a five trillion dollar tax cut on top of the bush and -- the bush tax cuts which is another 15 trillion dollars. how we pay for that, reduce the deficit and make the investments we need to make without dumping the costs on to middle class americans is one of the central questions of the campaign. host: from our facebook page, here are some of the comments we have been the scene. -- we have been seeing. those are just some of the comments again. now, we certainly have a lot of tweets here that we want to read as well. doug says -- the new york times editorial this morning -- greg on the independent line. thank you for holding. what did you think of the debate? caller: thank you once again for having me on. i seem to be lucky to get on when you are on. i am a 33-year watcher of c- span. i thought without que
tax plan without blowing up the deficit or sticking it to the middle class. that's the math . we can't afford to go down that road again. >> steve: so the day after his terrible performance even the new york times called him president xannex. they have gone in damage control mode . they were portraying romney as an extremist and now back to romney is a flip-flopper and a big fact liar . >> brian: i thought the senator was right when team obama got a earful. the strategy was to lay back and not make major mistakes. governor romney will be a true choice. he defined himself as competent and capable . he was making himself relevant and holding the job. that's what you walk away . he undid over two million worth of advertising. >> gretchen: he had a answer about the five billion, trillion argument that the president said. he said that is not my tax plan. and you can see the difference when they are on a stage together going after each another and back out on the stump. on the stump you can say whatever you want. these are people supporting each cand date. this is a moment romney respondin
of initiatives to educate voters on issues in the election. the debt and deficit exceed $16 trillion. his article will appear tomorrow in usa today. we will show you an excerpt in just a moment. first some context to ross perot. when he ran as a third-party, he talked about the growing debt. \ [video clip] >> the world of a unlamented opportunity. what what they say to us if they knew by the year 2000 we will have left them with a national debt of $8 trillion? what would they say if they knew we make them the first generation of americans with a standard of living below the generation below them? we cannot do this to our children. in this election we have the opportunity to choose a candidate not a career politician, but a proven business leader with the ability to take on the tasks at hand. to balance the budget, to expand the tax base, to give our children back the american dream. the candidate is ross perot. the issue is our children. the choice is yours. host: from 1992 when he ran his first of two independent bids for the white house, falling short in 1992 and 1996. one viewer says we need t
. you need to take account of the fiscal deficit, which cannot go like that anymore, and the same thing with the external deficit, and that will require, of course, some adjustments, and nobody wants adjustments. people want miracles. in economics you don't have miracles. you just have good policy and hard work. >> are you encouraged by the policies that you are now seeing from both the europeans and the americans, or really do you sit here thinking more, more please? >> we're not impressed because i think that we have lost the last three years. since the crisis that started in 1988 -- 1998 and 1999, we knew we have not been able to tackle the real causes of the crisis. it has not been done in europe. it has not been done in the u.s. we are talking too much and doing too little. >> now, if this was any leader in latin america, perhaps people would ignore him, but this is the president that's running strong free market economies and policies, and that's why when somebody like this harvard ph.d. economist speaks, president as well, suzanne, people listen. of course, it reinforces what cou
teachers and expand student aid and beef up public unions, sure. cut the deficit and raise the tax rates on upper incomes of successful businesses, guess what it has not worked so far. if it was going to work, it would have already worked. so is this really obama's version of economic patriotism? let's talk. here's jimmy william and cnbc contributor of the american enterprise institute. what is so bloody patriotic about tax hikes, spending increases, regulatory increases and a lousy, worst economy since 1947? >> i'm worried what we will see in 2013 if the president wins is an economic patriot act. and part of it will be dramatically higher taxes on wealthier americans, entrepreneurs. anyone who thinks the end of the obama tax hikes are going to be raising it back to the clinton levels are crazy. you are going to see surtaxes, surtaxes on corporations. there's no way the obama spending numbers work without dramatically higher taxes far above what we saw in the clinton years. >> one of these things has my goat. obama talks about cutting tuition, you can't cut tuition if you expand student
on big bird. who knew that he was responsible for all these deficits? >> mika, what were your thoughts about barack obama not being able to deliver a single line like that when he didn't have the teleprompter and yesterday reading what his staff wrote for him so effectively on that stage with 30,000 people. >> it bothered me. we watch this every day. it seemed like some people might have been screaming at the tv saying, why aren't you saying that right now to him? it seemed prepared. but maybe that's the strategy. it was not satisfying at all. >> you know, willie -- >> it's like they took a whole day to respond. >> he carries this around where people are waiting till the next debate to see -- >> yeah. >> what is the depth of his understanding of the policies that he's debating and that he's reading on teleprompters? because yesterday, as he was reading the lines off of that teleprompter, you sat there going, oh, my gosh, he couldn't say one of these things spontaneously on wednesday night. but he can read it pretty well off the teleprompter. it's like bill maher said. a guy that's give
. >> $80 billion? >> it's like 80 build per year. and we need to cut -- close the deficit by a trillion. we got a trillion dollar deficit and it raises like -- i think it's less. maybe 40 billion. >> are you correct, it's not sufficient. >> and he's not talking about anything else. you can keep your entitlement, keep this -- he's not talking about doing specific things with entitlements. >> you're right to this extent. he's not talking specifics on entitlements. >> it's mostly we'll tax rich people so that -- or people that make over 250 and you'll basically get to keep everything including the phones. >> joe, i thought you either wanted to talk about the last minute kick that a billy -- >> i didn't see that. oh, the redskins. >> or my terrific story on debates in the "new york times" this morning. >> it was between piece. it was a very good piece. >> i did see that. >> thank you. let me recap. >> you didn't even mention the bengals beat the redskins. >> i was going to if you brought it up. and congratses on the reds, too. they have tied the nationals for best record in baseball. so we've g
-term and concerns about the national debt and deficit. concerns about jobs specifically in colorado. if you look at the markets, from the time the president got in office until now, you can see the chart that we have. it just scales up and up an up. the administration also has a couple of positives in the housing. seeing positive sign in recent week and month. out thing private sector employment growing. they are but on the negative side. you have this list of stories that they're dealing with. the libya fall-out. the new stuff about fast and furious that william la jeunesse had tonight. you had the slow g.d.p. growth and revision down to 1.3. continued unemployment. the afghanistan policy questions i'm ran threat. then the u.s. -israel relationship. these are constant stories. what about the back and forth and putting it all in perspective? >> on friday, there will be another jobs report that isn't good enough. i don't think we will see change in the jobless picture either this friday or friday november 2. before the election. i think people made up their mind about the economy a while ago. the
the question about how do you keep the code without increasing the deficit. but it's a promising proposal that tax policy exports like because it is achievable. now, if you lump the deductions together and don't fight them one by one and have a cap, that is easier to get done. >> on that 17,000, a, do you think we're going to hear about it tonight? does that include things like charitable deductions, mortgage deductions? how far do you think that goes? >> reporter: yes, it does. >> 17,000 cap across the board. that is meaningful. that would have a huge impact on the real estate market, it would have a huge impact broadly. >> reporter: yes, i believe from what i was reading yesterday, and i haven't gotten a chance to delve into it that $17,000 level was set purposefully because people in the under $200,000 income category generally speaking don't have more than that, right? but it makes it easier to begin taking on deductions as you move up the scale. so i do think it's positive. i would expect him to get asked about it and, you know, if he starts sketching out a little bit how he would re
the deficit? by getting rid of .012% of the budget? and speaking of jokes, everybody went crazy over big bird. immediately there was a big bird account and said if romney had grown up with me he wouldn't have all his numbers screwed up. not bad strike out. we should have done an elbow of big period on romney's head. i'm going to get to sheldon in a second, but do you know the 5 trillion-dollar in tax cuts that mitt romney is proposing 50% would go to the top 5%. $2.5 trillion to the top 5%. and you're worried about the less than half a billion that corporation for public broadcasting is going to get? then let's go to sheldon adelson. there was a great report done by the center for action fund. if mitt romney gets elected. $2.3 billion sheldon adelson saves over four years. that's just one guy. remember, corporation for public broadcasting $444 million. but $2.3 billion for sheldon adelson. that's not all. romney would get rid of the estate attacks. that will save sheldon adelson $8.9 billion. just for the sheldon adelson family, if romney is elected it will cost the american government over $
. they include reducing the deficit about4 trillion over ten years, an overhaul of the tax code, and changes to medicare and social security. now, if congress can't avoid that cliff, it also means an end to several tax cuts and a huge boost in the action at thats you will pay. the nonpartisan tax policy center estimates the average household will pay $3,500 more in taxes. the two policies which impact the average american the most are payroll taxes and the bush era tax cuts. democrats have already said they will not accept a deal unless tax cuts to americans making more than $250,000 a year are allowed to expire. >>> 5:06. 64 degrees. the phone wars between apple and samsung takes another nasty turn. >>> also ahead, crossing the line. the incident that has one police officer in hot water this morning. "and what's your name?" "oh, it's flo." "and what do you do?" "oh, i sell insurance like no one else." "oh, that's nice." "thank you." now, that's progressive. call or click today. >>> welcome back apparently, looking at photos and videos of cute, fuzzy baby animals can help improve your produc
't believe you have to touch medicare to take care of the deficit or the debt. >> listen, it's a numbers issue right? i'm a numbers guy. used to be 40 years ago that you had two people in america working to pay for every one retiree. now it's basically, you know, one worker paying for 10 to 20 different retirees because we've got this horrific demographic shift, 7500 people turning 60 every day. you're right. the numbers are unsustainable. what was interesting about your chart was this. i'll tell you what. the president is glad the election is only 39 days away. because yesterday kind of quietly, i don't want to get wonky, we had dismal economic data. we referenced it at the top. durable goods was terrible. boeing sold only one aircraft in august. gdp was revised down. 25% of people, i can't remember the source of the poll, basically said they'll slow down spending because of the fiscal cliff issue. things are slowing down because people, smart viewers of "morning joe" and cnbc know that we're going to get the biggest tax hike in history if congress doesn't do something so the economy is
exactly, and in raw numbers, the deficit problem the country has and he said that mitt romney is the better candidate to try to reverse the trend that the united nations government has been on in the past four years. so we'll have to see if he sharpens that attack even more today. but clearly they know they've got some challenges ahead, in new hampshire, of course the battleground state just four electoral votes there. in this tight race four votes could mean the difference between who is president and who is not. they want to fight hard. mitt romney's adopted home state there, if you will. >> right, so he'll be doing that for sure in new hampshire and then in ohio today. okay, thank you very much, ron mott appreciate that. >>> let's get more on the president's surge in the polls. he is increasing his lead in a number of key swing states. he's leading in all nine nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls taken over the last three weeks. let's talk about what's happening from the gop perspective. because some there are complaining about the polling. they say the pollsters are over
. the largest deficit in the history of our state. we told the regulators, look, business is not the enemy. we have very tough regulations on hydraulic fracturing. we do not spend all day getting in a situation with business where we cannot give them an answer. when they find we are not doing a very good job at something, we go right back at it. we want the job creators to feel comfortable. liz: you kind of went over the wii balance the budget. you did some controversial cutting. sometimes that is what you have to do. how do you stand up to that? how to get people on board? >> you want to bring people on board on all of your reforms. we are reforming the cleveland schools here like no one has ever seen. the mayor asked me to help him. i said great, fantastic. we involve people for the reforms that we need. i want people today or suggest to people today, do not be afraid of change. we are looking at the ways we can make the turnpike work for us. change sometimes frighten people, if you handle it in the right way, you can when. i am not in the job to take care of me. i am in the job to do someth
that he was responsible for all these deficits. >> sesame street taking center stage after romney said he'd cut subsidies for pbs do urg that debate. pbs released a statement saying, quote, governor romney does not understand the value the american people place on public broadcasting. paul ryan is getting outraged by the man who wants his seat in congress. ron zer bin raised $770,000 in the third quarter. to be fair, ryan stopped fund-raising when he accepted the nomination for vice president. he is still on the ballot and has 4 million bucks in the bank. >>> and who would play the president in a movie. michelle obama told the website pop sugar either denzel washington or will smith, and then she joked, will has the ears which might give him the edge. come on. now, we usually talk about fast food as the root of our country's obesity problem. but it sounds like americans are cooking up some fattening foods at home. the daily meal is out with the most searched recipes for 2012. it's our list today. at five, bread. yes, people do still make it at home. chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake.
debt and the deficit in the abstract but as soon as it starts coming to specifics and you start talking about what's really going to cut, it doesn't play very well. >> i think this is interesting in part because the republican strategy on medicare was a little more complicated than just vote for this. >> it was much more complicated. very tangled. >> what they were trying to do was split it where they were going to say if you're over 55 you're going to keep what you have now. in fact, we're going to spend $700 billion more on medicare over the next ten years. paul ryan instantly reversed the position that he had when he was in congress. it kept the president's medicare cuts. romney will repeal that. ryan says that too. it looked to me like that was working, that they were actually managing to sort of get to the president's left on medicare and attack him and say the president's going to cut your medicare, we're going to protect it. i don't know why it's not still working. >> here's why. so they've decided they're going to pick this fight on medicare. it's a bizarre fight they picked for
to the deficit. will wednesday be the night that he finally gives voters specifics? >> right. i think a debate is an opportunity to provide more specifics, i think they have provided a lot of specifics. and i think the overall point here is that congressman ryan was making, is that they offer a clear choice. of creating jobs, growing the economy, with their tax plan. or as president obama's plan would raise taxes on small businesses, job creators and do more to have a government-centered economy. which is what we've had for the past four years and we're still at 8.1 unemployment with 23 million americans looking for jobs. i think that president obama can't change the facts on wednesday night. and i think the contrast will be very clear. so i look forward to seeing that. >> let's talk about the figure, 8.1% unemployment that could be a conservative estimate. when you take into the fact the folks who have just stopped looking. that's been the economic reality in this country for several months now. but governor romney has not been able to move the needle. in fact in many of the battleground stat
bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [cheers and applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward, not now, not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers. train two million workers in community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half, create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from end the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation-building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that is how the you strengthen the middle class. that is how you keep moving forward. that is the choice in this election. and that's why i'm runni
is from higher income households. >> $1.3 trillion deficit you definitely need something to bring that deficit down. bring the national debt down at some point down the road. once there is a balanced budget. who knows when that would be. most people assume nothing is going to happen as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned between now and november 6. but afterwards in that lame duck session between november 6 and december 31, something will happen. are you among those who will agree -- agree that the fiscal cliff will be avoided? >> yes. i think it will be avoided. i mean, you know, depends on the election. you know. if governor romney wins it is likely -- would kick the can into next year. leave everything the same for a few months. let -- the new president come into office and get it together. probably in the spring. president obama wins the election, then right after the election, lame duck, the clock will start ticking and he will be under a lot of pressure to do something. let me say one other thing. you know, i think the most likely scenario is that we are actually going to h
figure out if it adds up and not add up to the federal deficit. i think president obama needs to make his points very clear and concise and not try to give us too many soundbytes. first of all, he should say my policies helped to end the greatest economic disaster since the great depression. then, number two, he should stress that we've created more than five million jobs. those job numbers have been revived, of course. the president needs to be clear that his policies and the policies that he has proposed to congress that congress will not deal with because they're more focused on theron re-election and not focused on getting the american people back to work. he said his policies will continue to bring about jobs. it will fasten economic growth in this country, and that he has a plan to deal with the federal deficit as well. i think the president can say that. >> as long as we don't have a wardrobe malfunction, we're good. >> we'll keep it rated g. anna, what are some of the pit falls that romney has to avoid here, because, you know, both candidates have strengths and weaknesses. if you
it was a disaster. it explode the deficit. and it contributed to the economic problems we see today. look at the tax policy under president clinton which is very close to what the president obama is talking about going back to. we had a surplus. we had job growth. you won't get me saying anything about the bush administration's economic policies were anything but a disaster. joining me now sean spicer, the communications director for the republican national committee. i know your side believes vice president bind got it just right because romney is selling t-shirts praising joe biden's honesty. >> i think we are starting this deof --starting this debate wita little honesty. we are seeing a huge amount of debt piles on it was four years ago this president dazzled us in debate saying he understood the problems this country faced. he knew the magnitude of the issues the country had to get through. but he had the right solution. here we are four years later and he still hasn't accomplished any of what he set out to do. that will be the biggest hurdle he has to overcome tonight looking back saying why di
